ON LOGISTICS OF MOBILE ELECTRONIC TEXTBOOKS IMPLEMENTATION AND USE
- D. A. Bogdanova
- A. A. Fedoseev
Taking into consideration the current situation of supply of broadband access in the schools in Russia, based on reviews in international and national publications regarding introduction of electronic textbooks, the authors identify a number of issues inherent to this process, inhibiting its successful implemen-tation and needing a proper resolution. The authors introduce the concept of ideal availability of an electronic textbook, based on which the authors suggest a number of ways of distribution of electronic textbooks. The authors introduce the notion of lifecycle of an electronic textbook, which helps to identify the pro-cesses of modernization and of creation of new textbooks. The authors also clarify the meaning of the notion of mobility of an electronic textbook. As a result, the authors managed to coin a prototype of an electronic textbook, which, when realized, allows minimizing its dependence on availability of broadband access. Therefore, this solution differs from its analogues both in Russia and globally.
